    I`m pretty sure it was colored water. Paint doesn`t fall like it did in the end and colored water could be just washed away unlike paint

    some is real like the main building blowing to get colored.

    but i think they edited the effects and stuff to make it look nicer

    Actually D2B this was shot in Glasgow in Scotland, and it was correct that these houses and flats were being pulled down soon. However, it was a Danish photographer who directed the first advert (the bouncing balls in an San Fransiscan street.

    Here is my theory on the clown.

    It was supposed to look like he did it, and he is running from the scene.

    (yeah... i know, stupid question)

    and i do agree with Diane, it look like they wanted to make belive the clowns did it but it was a bad idea... i think the clowns should have been a bit more colorfull ...

    wow, i really do appreciate those awesome bravia ads.
    but the first one was definately better, no doubt about it. I liked that the clown was black and white, because it looked like he was there to be painted or something. But i didn`t like him too much.

    I thought it was pretty lame. Exploding paint, whoopee. It was well done in terms of being timed with the music, but what was the point? The clown was just bizarre. I think they could`ve done something that was a lot more creative and memorable. From an advertising (exec) standpoint it wasn`t done well either.

    It was ok but forgettable.

    It doesn`t matter if the Cards barely got by the Mets or kicked their butts. A win is a win. We`re going to Detroit, the Mets are going on vacation.

    Oh and ummmmm......D2B...... that "commercial from 1951" is the bravia commercial. You can even see the "bravia-advert.com" in the lower right corner of the "old" commercial. Someone messed with it to make it look like it`s old.

    D2B, you are a dumbass. Those were the EXACT same shots as the Bravia commercial, and no one can take B&W footage from 1952 and convert it to COLOR anyway. It was obviously the current commercial, made to look aged through the use of POOR special-effects, the likes of which can be found on free video-editing software such as Windows Movie Maker; and the smoking gun, are you telling me there was SPRAYPAINT graffiti back in 1952? Remember that shot where the paint was pouring down the stairwell? Check it again. And angelicamber, what are you doing even humoring D2B`s complaint? Have you even OBSERVED the "original" in question?

    But if it was all real.. that`s pretty impressive.
